Family Argentina

As one of the finest destinations in South America, Argentina is a magical enough destination for all-comers, and an Argentina family holiday will be a sure-fire hit for parents and children alike.

Our Original Travel Latin America specialists can help you tailor-make a perfect Argentina family holiday incorporating your ideal mix of cultural immersion, adventure and wildlife spotting, and including our exclusive additional services, from fast-track check-in and security at the airport, and lounge access (even if you're flying in economy), to the services of our clued-up local Concierge when you're actually in Argentina. It's a long old flight to Buenos Aires, so we also always include a fun pack of challenges and a quiz about the destination designed by the hugely popular children's party people Sharky & George.

So, that's the some of the added value of booking with Original Travel, but where are the key places you can't miss out on an Argentina family holiday? The obvious (and literal) starting point will most likely be the lively capital Buenos Aires where you can introduce your children to a Latin passion for life, some delicious food and the city's vibrant districts, such as La Boca where the houses are painted in vivid colours. If your children are sports fans, then watching a local football match is also extremely good fun. Come evening, we can arrange a tango lesson for the you and the little ones, which always goes down a treat, even if just to watch Dad's two left feet in action.

Away from BA, Argentina is your oyster. Head to the Pampas to introduce the children to the gaucho (cowboy) lifestyle, where they can pick up tricks of the trade like lassoing or try their hands at riding and even polo.

Further south still, Patagonia is the place for big adventures in big country. Take the children to see the enormous Perito Moreno glacier, on a boat near to the vast ice cliffs of the glacier's snout or trekking (10-year olds and over) across the icy top of the glacier. Elsewhere in Patagonia the family can go whale watching or visit penguin colonies.

At the other end of this vast country are two more natural highlights: the Iguacu Falls and the Ibera Wetlands. The waterfalls and river form the border between Argentina and Brazil, and there are walkways on the Argentinian side right out over the horseshoe-shaped Devil's Throat, the most majestic part of what forms the world's largest waterfall system. Meanwhile, the Ibera Wetlands are perfect for budding wildlife experts, and somewhere the family can spot caimans (cousins of crocs), capybaras (overgrown guinea pigs) and giant otters.
